Since Merck Research Laboratories-Boston opened its doors on Emmanuel's campus in 2004, students and faculty have benefited from this unique collaboration in a number of ways.

Emmanuel is the only college in the country with a private pharmaceutical research facility right on campus. Merck Research Laboratories-Boston opened its 12-story, 300,000-square-foot facility at Emmanuel in 2004.

Each year, Emmanuel students participate in internships at Merck, gaining hands-on skills and experience that can lead to full-time employment following graduation. In addition, the endowed Merck Scholarship provides support for students majoring in the fields of Biology, Chemistry, Neuroscience and Biostatistics.
